Abstract: This paper reports a novel method to differentiate cashmere from synthetic fibres and even from other wool fibres with the help of laser diffraction patterns. In the diffraction pattern, only natural fibres depict additional spots above and below the actual diffraction plane. These spots can be used to distinguish different fibre materials by comparing their length-to-height aspect ratio with standard values. Especially, it can be recognized that the diffraction lines above and below the diffraction plane are significantly longer and finer for cashmere fibres than for any other wool.
